    I suppose that this is the sort of forum where people like to compare what they do or what they have with what others have or do, and get a sense for general preferences and choices of the forum at large.

    My current phone is a Nokia 3510, a wonderfully venerable antique; the model dates from 2002 and still works perfectly. As it happens, I work abroad a lot of the time, and, as I require a phone with a local number when I am at home, I inherited it from my mother, who has, bless her, a touch of dementia and therefore will no longer be in any position to use it.

    Anyway, the phone dates from 2002, and I have been using it for the past two years. I must say that I get a real frisson of excitement when I note the contemptuous derision and barely suppressed shudder with which the cool, dead-eyed youngsters regard my antique Nokia.

    Now, I have never used a smart phone in my life, and, for the moment, I have no real desire to acquire one.

    Meanwhile, my computers date from 2013 and 2014. They are two MBAs, both CTOs, a 13" (2013) and an 11" (2014).

    iPhone 6 is from release day.
    Mac Mini May 2009
    Mac Pro February 2008
    Both computers are running well. No doubt, if I play with a newer machine I will likely find 100 flaws with my two others. ;)

    Laptop- Since April 2014

    Plan on replacing the phone in a year, the laptop in about 4 years. Yeah, I really hang onto computers for a while :p My previous MBP made it over 5 years before it met an untimely death.

    Just replaced my launch day iPhone 4 a few weeks ago with an iPhone 6.

    My MacBook is from late 2008 and still going strong. Likely to replace it with next refresh.

    Phone - iPhone 6: December 24, 2014
    Computer - 2013 13" rMBP (refurb): July'ish, 2014

    Sadly, I'm one of those people that feels the need to upgrade devices every year or two. The phone is semi-justifiable given the degree of improvement of each iPhone on a 2 year basis. I think cellphones still have a much larger and more rapid degree of improvement year over year as opposed to regular computers. Upgrading laptops every two years has been pretty unnecessary.

    I had an iPhone 3GS then 4S then Note 1 yet a few months ago fell back on an older LG flipphone I had a few months before the 3GS so it is a very years old.

    My other system are from the last few months. I use a Windows 8.1 tablet as my man computer and tab pro as camera and reader and everything else. I go back and forth a lot.
